A college football player call Nick Chubb suffered an horrific looking injury in a game at the weekend.

Playing for his school Georgia against Tennessee, Chubb was tackled in the very first bit of action of the game when he suffered the horrible injury.

You can clearly see his leg bend in an unnatural way.

The player is reported to have passed out from the pain after he was taken from the field.

The incredible news is that the injury was not as bad as it looks and Chubb may not even require surgery to repair the knee. However, he remains on crutches and there is no date set for the 21-year-old to return to action.
